It's Friday!

Friday, June 10, 2011

It's been a sad and happy day!  Friday has been my favorite day of the week since as long as I can remember, but today I realized I'll be graduating soon.  Yeah, I'm going off to college (don't worry, hopefully it will not tamper with my blogging schedule too much).  So today at school, I was feeling all blue.  It was my last Friday in high school.  Last pizza and cookie day (my school only serves pizza and cookies on Friday).  Last cake of the week, last almost everything.  I was a little upset but I can't wait for summer to begin and I'll definitely be spending it with my head in a book or hanging out with my friends. 

Anyway, even though it was the last Friday of high school, there will still be plenty of Fridays to spend with you, guys.  And do you know what that means?  I mean, I get to participate in two awesome memes. Follow Friday from Parajunkee and Blogger Hop from are Friday memes, a great way to make new friends. Here's the questions below:

The magic book fairy pops out of your cereal box and says "you and your favorite character (from a book of course) can switch places!" Who are you going to switch with?
Wow, this question sounds like its in celebration of the new movie, coming out August 5, The Change-Up.  You can find details HERE (the only reason I'm stalling my answer is because I have no clue what to write).  This question is definitely difficult to respond to.

I probably would love to change places with Elizabeth Holland, from my favorite series The Luxe by Anna Godbersen.  Liz is such a charming and strong character that I love her to death.  First, the books are set in the late 1800s in Manhattan.  So, in that, I think that would be enough reason to switch places with her.  Not to mention (well, I am mentioning it-), in the first book she runs off with this hot stable boy.  Though I didn't approve of all her choices in the books, I could change her actions if I wanted because I'd still have my brain, just someone else's face.

Who is the ONE author that you are DYING to meet?
Well, I'm here to confess something.  I've never actually met an author in person.  I know, I'm a book blogger, I should go to signings or something.  But I live in the middle of no where and the chances of meeting anyone in a five-mile radius is a shock.  So if I met one author, to sit down with him would be amazing (even though those chances are majorly slim), that author would be Barry Lyga.  Barry Lyga's voice rings so clear and fantastically wonderful in my mind when I read his work that if I had the chance to meet him in real life, I would probably be too shy to even say a word; I'd just be in awe.  Lyga is freakin' awesome!

I first read The Astonishing Adventures of Fanboy and Goth Girl back in 7th grade and I remember how astonished and blown away by Lyga's story.  Then in tenth grade, I got my hands on Hero-Type, which didn't sound like my type of book (but I knew that if it had Lyga's name on it, it had to be great) but even when I went on vacation to Disney World, I stayed up all night reading it in my hotel room.  Now a senior and I read Boy Toy in November (and loved it!).  I wish I could say I've read all his books, but he has tons more.  But being able to meet him has been on my bucket list for a long time.

So, what are your responses to the questions above, I'm dying to know what author is on your bucket list?  I hope you all have a lovely weekend!  Enjoy this summer weather!

  4. Interesting choice. I don't think I would swap into the world of Luxe. :)

    The Haunting of Orchid Forsythia

  5. Oh my I forgot all about the Luxe! I remember I couldn't take my eyes off the beautiful cover, and then I fell in love with the characters in the book. Elizabeth and Will (was that his name again?)'s romance was so sad, I felt heartbroken for them ):

  7. I actually considered one of the girls from the Luxe series, but I ended up choosing Lena from Traveling Pants... good choice, though!

  8. Hopping through. Congrats on finishing high school!
    I'd love to be in the Luxe world - without all the drama. As long as I could be wealthy during that era. It'd be really bad to be poor.
